DEATH BY CHOCOLATE (WHAT A BEAUTIFUL WAY TO GO!)
In the "spirit" of Halloween I thought that I might chat about my favorite part of Halloween, CHOCOLATE! Halloween is the perfect excuse for me to feast on some of my favorite chocolate treats! After my girls go Trick-or-Treating someone has to make sure that the candy is safe for their consumption (it's a tough job but someone has to do it!). Now I know that chocolate has its flaws, like fat and useless calories but remember every cloud has a silver lining you know.
COME OVER TO THE DARK SIDE
Dark chocolate, not milk chocolate, has many health benefits. Studies have shown that daily consumption of dark chocolate (about the size of a Dove bar) has been shown to improve skin's condition by making it softer and smoother. Cocoa contains powerful antioxidants called flavonoids which help prevent cell damage and inflammation. In other studies Cocoa consumption has also been shown to increase blood flow to areas such as your skin and brain which resulted in improved memory and attention span. I found this information from CNN.com Article written by Marjorie Ingall from Health.com.
Now is chocolate a cure all? Will it make you instantly more beautiful? Probably not. But I do know that when I eat chocolate I feel better and when I feel better I think I look better. (Maybe this is just my way of rationalizing my need to consume chocolate). Just keep in mind that even dark chocolate has a lot of calories, so don't over do it! Before I go I must share with you my favorite Halloween chocolate treats from Godiva Chocolates. Halloween Milk Chocolate Mini Pretzels are a delicious combination of salty and sweet, I love them!

THE MINI MULTI-TASKER
I love any beauty product that makes my beauty on-the-go routine easier. NARS has a cute set of 3 of their popular cream to powder multi-taskers called NARS Multiple Coffret ( I found it at Sephora). Each of the these can be used on your eyes, lips and cheeks. The shades that are included are Orgasm (peachy pink shimmer), South Beach ( shimmering apricot), and Copacabana (glistening pearl). I love using cream to powder makeup especially in the Fall and Winter because they go on so easily and it gives my dry Winter skin a smoother and softer appearance.
TINY PURSE APPROVED
You can use these "multi-taskers" alone or together. I like to use the South Beach shade as my bronzer. I give my forehead, cheeks and nose a sweep of the South Beach and then I blend it in with my (clean) fingers. For my blush I like to use Orgasm and then I follow up with The Copacabana as my highlighter to create shimmering accents to my cheeks and brow. I love that these products blend in so well with my skin and that all the colors compliment each other. I also like the fact that these tubes of makeup are small enough so you can easily fit all 3 in your purse.
BRIT'S NIT PICKS
I love that you can get 3 different shades in this set however, they are VERY tiny and you do not get much makeup in the tubes. If you really like using these "multi-taskers" then I would suggest that you make the investment and purchase the full sized versions.

HEY, KEEP IT CLEAN!
H1N1, the seasonal flu, colds, germs and viruses, like it or not they are EVERYWHERE! I went to the mall this weekend and paid close attention to all the surfaces that I touched and that everyone else has also touched. Door handles, bathroom stall door locks, chairs and tables in the food court and the worst of them all, the handrails on the escalator (yuck!!) Obviously, hand washing is essential especially when you are out in public areas , ie the mall, grocery stores, restaurants. The problem is that soap and water are not always readily available. This is where products like Victoria's Secret, Secret Garden Anti-Bacterial Sanitizing Hand Gel comes in "handy".
SANITIZE IN STYLE!
The fact that I want to keep my husband, children and myself healthy this cold and flu season has spurred me to seek out good anti-bacterial hand cleansing products. Victoria's Secret, Secret Garden Anti-Bacterial Sanitizing Hand Gel in Love Spell is what I am carrying in my purse these days. It is a "no water" required way to wash your hands anywhere or anytime you need to. It smells great, comes in a travel size and won't dry out hands, what's not to love?
I also understand that even though you tell your kids to wash their hands before they eat lunch at school chances are they forget to do it. I have placed a package of the Victoria's Secret Sanitizing Hand Wipes in my daughter's lunchboxes. These wipes are a super convenient, easy way to clean hands on the go, (especially good for kids and husbands). They are great for those who are "preoccupied" with other things like "who am I going to sit next to at lunch" rather than remembering to wash their hands! Trust me, if it is there they will use it.
Please let me know what you think of these products. Till then! B.

Have you ever had a time when out of the blue your skin decides to act up? Well mine is acting up now. I have not made any changes in my skin care routine. I haven't made any changes in my diet, I still get my daily dose of healthy antioxidants ( chocolate!). So, what do you do when you need a little girl advice? Ask your mom what she would do!
MUD IN YOUR EYES
Sometimes you need to "reset" your skin even if you haven't made any changes in your diet or skin care routine. In order to do this you need to deeply cleanse, purify and refine. My new "go to" product is one that has been around for a long time. Good old fashioned MUD!; I tried my mom's Borghese Fango Active Mud for Face and Body and I am so happy I listened to her. I applied this mud mask to my skin while it was damp and because it is green in color it makes it very easy to see where you have applied it so you won't neglect any areas of your face. I let it sit for about 20 minutes or until it was completely dry. I love the tightening feeling that you get as this mask dries.
THE RESULTS ARE IN!
After using the Borghese Fango Active Mud Mask my skin was remarkably softer and smoother, my pores were definitely tighter and those "pre-pimple bumps" were gone. So , yes once again mom was right. Please let me know what you think. Till then! B.

BRITNEY'S WHAT'S HOT AND NEW BEAUTY REVIEW
I have recently tested out Yves Saint Laurent latest perfume creation, Parisienne. I have to say that I LOVE the design of this bottle. It looks like a perfectly cut, flawless pink diamond which is a brilliant choice for a woman's fragrance (diamonds ARE a girl's best friend you know).
WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE PARIS
Parisienne takes your senses on a whirl wind, sexy, romantic rendezvous to Paris, France. This perfume is exactly what I would imagine walking down a quaint french rue in the evening would be like. The floral scent reminds me of a street side vendor who's cart is full of the days freshest cut flowers The hint of sandalwood and musk helps bring out the sensual side of this fragrance. Parisienne is an ultra-feminine fragrance that wraps your skin in its beautiful floral aroma. I must be honest and admit that at first I found Parisienne to be a little strong. It wasn't exactly love at first spritz. However, as the day went on I had fallen hard for Parisienne's charms.
PARLE VOUS FRANCAIS?
Not fluent in French then let Parisienne do the talking. This fragrance says that you are feminine, sexy, adventuresome and confident. It is sweetness with a hint of sophistication and where innocence meets intrigue. Parisienne has notes of violet, peony, patchouli, Damas Rose, sandalwood and musk.
Why do I wear perfume? That's easy! I wear it for my husband. If he hates a perfume then out it goes. He happens to LOVE the way Parisienne smells!! Evidenced by the fact that he kept sniffing my neck and telling me how nice I smelled all day long! So yes, Parisienne is a definite keeper! Go on your own Parisienne adventure by checking out this fragrance!
Please let me know what you think. Till then! B.
